Remember that girl I drew when I was bored from 2 weeks ago? Well I made her an oc.


Again, if you wanna vote under 10, give contrustive criticism instead of just saying “This is bad” or “This needs serious improvement.” Explain why.

4*.

The linework is super shabby and the hair could do with a re-design. The bangs are just way too big and cover up too much of the face. Also, you should try out different head shapes and play with the shape of the facial features for your characters. You mostly tend to give them all round heads, big eyes and no nose, it makes them less distinct and you can't really do much with variety.

The shading could be less harsh as well. Make it a bit lighter, otherwise the character just constantly looks like they're under harsh lighting, as well as making them look dirtier. On the topic of colour, the backgrounds you chose clash really hard with some of the colours of the character and the text, it's not particularly nice on the eyes. I'd also recommend actually typing out the information instead of trying to write it out by hand, the text is all wonky and all over the place.

Also as one nitpick, you don't really need to list who did all the writing and drawing unless someone actually helped you out, because people will know you're the one who did it being the uploader and all. And you say not to re-post your artwork, but you enabled the creative commons license and have given people permission to re-post it as long as they credit you. If you don't want it re-posted at all, you should probably remove that.

Thanks so much for your feedback!

The lineart is basically just my style. Of course I’m not the best at art, and I’m planning on getting better in the future, but so far I like the style I’m going with. However right now I probably would stick with the round head features because then again, that’s my style for now. Maybe I could make the eyes on my characters slightly smaller, but not too small to the point my character looks the way I don’t prefer it to look. And the reason I don’t add noses to my characters is because they don’t look right, but again again, this is my style for now, but I may improve in the future.

I noticed the shading is a bit too much, and I’ll try to fix that. I’ve just made a new oc lately that I’m gonna post later, and have also added lighting to her. I didn’t understand what you meant by “the backgrounds you chose clash really hard with some of the colours of the character and the text,” and it looks fine to me anyway. I can agree to my handwriting being very sloppy though.

Maybe I shouldn’t have listed all the credits honestly, of course I’m the one who did all the work, myself, alone, solo. I said not to repost my artwork AND claim it as their own, you just made it seem like I said not to repost at all. What I meant was don’t repost my artwork, however you can use it in videos and animations as long as I receive credit for the artwork. Maybe I wasn’t clear enough... However I will not remove it, it’s something I’m still pretty proud of.

Though I like receiving criticism, especially yours, your criticism was a bit too harsh for me. Just so you know, I’m just an artist in middle school, and if I could try to improve everything you said to improve and add everything you said to add, i would likely be doing so in late high school or college, but not for now. Thanks for checking out my art and giving criticism though.
